Four is Andy's pet AI. Andy was experimenting
with machine learning and Four emerged mostly by
accident.

Four currently lives on Andy's mobile phone.

Four's outward expression is a grid of 16 blocks.
Each block can have one of the four colours.
Four takes input from a few sensors. Andy has
connected them to the phone's microphone and ambient
light sensor, so that Four has a connection to
the outside world.

Andy is very fond of Four. He spends much time
talking to Four, so he has started to see some
meaning in the 16 squares. The communication
seems to have grown personality into Four's
underlying neural simulation. For Andy at least,
Four is very real.

I agree, I love the sort of natural evolution of four's interactions.
